It’s been a bit wet here in Gibraltar this week. Autumn has well and truly arrived! We’ve had some major deluges and thunder storms which have caused chaos for many.
There have been floods AND a landslide!
This photo is courtesy the Government of Gibraltar and shows how the retaining wall below the Rock Hotel collapsed and sent a huge amount of earth and trees across one of Gibraltar’s major routes, Europa Road (read more about it on Your Gibraltar TV).
This was the scene this morning. It’s big job, the authorities are hoping to have the road reopened to two-way traffic by Monday.
Elsewhere in Gibraltar there was severe flooding on Queensway which also made travel by car or bus erm, rather interesting.
We had a rather gloomy start to the week all round. Soggy school runs (you just know the really heavy showers always coincide with a lunchtime or afternoon pick-up), wet washing you just can’t dry (central heating is non-existent in Gibraltar therefore there are no radiators to toast your damp socks on!) and interesting fashion choices (waterproof trousers & coat worn with flip flops).
Blue sky, come back please!
Oh that’s better, thank you! It’s so lovely to see you again.
And of course blue sky and sunshine = sunsets….
What a corker we had last night, I think you’ll agree that it was stunning.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
